No dumplings to celebrate – I suddenly got ravenous at 5pm so I ate a quick + early dinner by myself.

Spinach Sardine Dip is such a fast, filling, and nutrient-dense meal. I like to make this when Abe’s not around because he can’t stand the smell of fish.

This time, I used “Boneless Herring Fillets,” which have a smokier flavor…

…and spoonfuls of Apricot Fig Chutney for saucy sweetness:

Ding donged in the microwave til warmed through, seasoned with S + P….

After that bite, I thought it would be more fun to tear it into pieces and make a “stew.”

The toast absorbs all the liquids and becomes soft. I think you get more mileage outa your slice, too.

I was in a rush with dinner, but felt satiated enough to wait til 9:30pm for my next nosh. Even had the patience to wait almost 45 minutes for dessert!

Topped the TJ’s Pumpkin Soufflés with warmed, frozen berries

Still stand by my last review – these really aren’t worth the wait.
